user reviews of the Rifle Volunteer, Burnley

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

With a little time to spare before heading to a game at Turf Moor, we decided to head back to the Rifle Volunteer. Unlike our visit after a game 2 years ago, this time before the game, it was packed. Apparently a nearby social club had run out of beer, which probably explained the numbers. After eventually getting to the bar, we found a very similar selection to last time - Reedley Hallows No Nay Never & Festive Cheer & Bass. My drinking partner wasn't overly impressed with the Bass. We stood outside, where there was a little more space.

The Rifle Volunteer is a little away from the town centre. But it is not too far of a diversion if you're heading from Turf Moor to Manchester Road station, as we were. You can at least start making your way uphill here and there is also a chippy on the way back to the station! We weren't too inspired by the ale selection here though and were surprised that it makes the current Good Beer Guide. 3 ales were on - Reedley Hallows No Nay Never & Filly Close Blonde & Bass. Whilst the pub is a fairly decent local, albeit surprisingly quiet with the football on, there are better ale selections in many other pubs across Burnley. I guess it depends whether you want variety of ales or just a quiet place for a pint.

A great traditional pub, 2 ales both excellent, well worth a visit.
